The UFC put on nearly 40 shows in 2018. So the company handed out a lot of bonus money for ruinous knockouts.
But one stood above them all as the UFC officially named Yair Rodriguez’s reverse-elbow KO of Chan Sung Jung their Knockout of the Year. And appropriately it took place on the promotion’s 25th anniversary.
Headling UFC Denver, Yair Rodriguez battled for nearly five rounds, electrifying the crowd with a blistering pace from start to finish. That finish came with just a single second on the clock—one second that separated Jung from his senses, and Rodriguez from immortality.
